VIDEO | MFT Paper Planes

Hello there, I am delighted to be over on the My Favorite Things YouTube channel today, sharing a card using the Paper Planes set from the January release. This is such a cute set that is perfect for lots of different occasions. For my card today, I created a hugs card with a rainbow colour scheme.  

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by creating the background. I partially die cut one of the MFT Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-namics from white cardstock. I just cut the bottom banner piece only, so that I can could make the shape longer in height. I then cut the sides using a guillotine. I placed the MFT Cloud Stencil on top and then using blending brushes, I blended Distress Inks on top to create the colourful clouds. 

After using Picked Raspberry for the top layer, I removed the stencil, rotated it and placed it back below the first cloud layer. This layer was blended with Dried Marigold. I continued this with all the layers (roating the stencil as I went) using the following colours - Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet. I finished off with Picked Raspberry at the bottom. 

I then stamped the images from the MFT Paper Planes Stamp Set onto white cardstock using black ink. They were coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and then die cut out using the coordinating Paper Planes Die-namics. The sentiment from the set was stamped onto MFT Black Licorice Cardstock using Versamark Ink

I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was then cut into a strip. I adhered the clouds to the banner piece using liquid glue and adhered the birds and dog/plane with thin foam tape. I added thin foam tape to the back of the banner and then adhered it to a US A2 sized white card base. To finish off, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the googles. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:

  1. This is so cute Michelle, love the cloudy rainbow coloured banner background and of course your colouring is always amazing! The little bird and the envelopes frame the flying dog so perfectly!
